Quoting Engine

Automated, Scalable Connectivity Quoting Engine

Quoting network-related products can be a very manual, spreadsheet-driven process. Many network providers are forced to identify the pricing logic for dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of locations at one time and then manually craft and send a quote to their prospect. These extraordinarily time-consuming activities are so slow that they can often lead to missed opportunities and, consequently, revenue loss.

Connected2Fiber has solved the challenges associated with quoting connectivity by providing an automated, scalable solution so network providers can reliably and simply quote thousands of locations in mere minutes.

With Connected2Fiber’s Quoting Engine, network providers can:

$

Automate the quoting process to generate thousands or tens of thousands of quotes in minutes so every sales opportunity can be captured.

$

Easily load in desired locations for quoting. The user of the quoting engine can either directly interact with a location within the platform and send it to the quoting workflow or bulk upload locations of interest that require a quote and send it to the quoting workflow.

$

Control the quoting process end-to-end for maximum flexibility and control. Connected2Fiber’s quoting engine allows users to select quoting configurations (including selecting the price book type, terms, products, speeds, and media types), immediately retrieve the relevant product prices through an API workflow that pulls pricing from the customer’s instance as well as from market APIs, then attach pricing and system reference data to the quote. Finally, where desired, the customer can govern the ICB approval process through easy-to-use workflows in order to comply with company policies.

$

Generate quotes in PDF format and send to customers directly from the platform. Network providers leveraging Connecter2Fiber’s quoting engine will reap the benefits of being able to stay in one system when sending out quotes to prospects and tracking their progress. Users can identify contacts to send official proposals to within the platform and easily send out a PDF-based proposal complete with relevant quoting information that includes the quote number, expiration, and other data. When interacting with a buyer that also leverages Connected2Fiber’s platform, requests and communications are able to flow from instance to instance so users can easily track progress on a deal.
